Politics/Comedy: Seth Meyers Says, “Hey, Hillary Clinton, Stop Blaming Bernie Sanders” (Video)

Okay, I will admit to not watching a whole lot of Late Night With Seth Meyers. No reason. No hate. Always thought dude was funny. Plus, there’s the YouTube… where apparently the system knows I would like some stuff he says and suggests his clips to me.

Know what? YouTube is RIGHT! This “Hey!” clip is EPIC!

I did not even know Senator Clinton was throwing the shade at Senator Sanders in her book like that. And don’t worry, I got a clip with Bernie Sanders giving a rebuttal, with a pivot, to focus us on the REAL issues. No matter what, we need to keep our eyes on the prize(s) in #FeelTheBern mode after the jump.

But wait! Watch the hilariousness (and insight) above from Meyers.

(Full disclosure: I have not read Hillary Clinton’s book. Probably good though.)

The ‘Bernie Commercial’ That Would Have Won The Election (Video)

Sure, Jimmy Dore is a comedian, but this ‘Bernie’ ad right here… right here??? Shiiiid, nothing funny about it. This is sould-stirring stuff! Just wish someone would have culled together footage and presented it like this BEFORE the Democratic Primary election.

Then again, who is to say it would have changed the outcome. Did Democrats and other primary voters who backed Hilary Clinton over Bernie Sanders really evaluate both candidates on the points made for Bernie in the ‘ad’ above? Probably not. They probably thought Hilary was more ‘electable’ no matter what Bernie points were made (or could have been made)… that she could ‘beat’ The Donald.

And we all know how that turned out. Ah well, we still #FeelTheBern

However, we will not waste another I-Told-You-So on the subject. Just watch. This is incredible and so on point!

Release Of DNC Emails Proves Bias Against Bernie Sanders Campaign And Cost Party Chair Her Job (Video)

Bernie Sanders says the release of DNC emails underscore the position he’s held for months: party chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz needs to go.

(UPDATE: And now she is. Debbie Wasserman Schultz has been ‘quarantined’ and will resign her post.)

Damn, DNC. See why we #FeelTheBern now? Because we feel that y’all are full of that bullsh!t. To be certain, Debbie was just a cyst, the cancer is still within the Democratic Party. Damn and damn it!

To his credit, Senator Sanders is still being the grown up in the room of school gossips: He is still pledging still to back Hillary Clinton and help defeat Trump. Aligned with the party whose leadership tacitly backs those who would malign him.

Wow. Just. Wow. You KNOW the Conservative media and RNC will be all over this, as they should be. DAAAAMMMN!

Rosario Dawson

Feel that? It’s the Bern! Great lead-off to an hour-strong ‘Bernie Sanders For President’ rally in the South Bronx (New York) by the uber-sexy (yes) actor-activist Rosario Dawson.

To Be Clear: Bernie Sanders And Donald Trump Are NOT The Same…At All! (Video)

Ha! A two-fer! Bernie Sanders in the White House AND Bill O’Reilly moving to Ireland. Let’s do it people. O’Reilly was talking to Stephen Colbert the other night, saying that Sanders and Donald Trump were the same candidate with ‘different haircuts.’ WHAT? Okay, commentary like that alone might get more folks voting for Sanders (bye Bill). Watch Sanders’ sit-down with Colbert…making more sense than Trump has for most of his life.

Fresh off of his win in the New Hampshire primary, Bernie Sanders stops by The Late Show to talk about why his campaign is different.

Killer Mike With Advice To White Americans And More On ‘The Late Show’ With Stephen Colbert (Video)

Let’s borrow Larry Wilmore’s catch phrase and apply it to the guest former Comedy Central cohort Stephen Colbert had on just recently: The man Killer Mike kept it 100 (and then some) on the The Late Show, didn’t he? Hitting a variety of hot topics with Colbert: Ferguson, Baltimore, race relations in general, stumping for his Presidential candidate of choice Bernie Sanders and so much more.

Politics: Killer Mike Endorses Bernie Sanders For President (Video)

If you lean to the left (e.g. are likely to vote Democrat in the coming 2016 U.S. election), you should be gathering information and forming impressions NOW. Because before you know it, you will have a decision to make. Every person who has ever run for office has understood that, in order to win, she or he must be supported and admired (and hated) by the right people. So, if you’re thinking Hilary Clinton’s the one, I hope you are learning who is for and against her. Alternatively, if you are taking a hard look at Bernie Sanders – “feeling the Bern” as it were – then you should take a look at the clip above. We KNOW you love Hip-Hop and the Culture if you come to this site often. But maybe “Politics As Usual” has soured you on voting (or even caring). I hope you read my VOTE DAMMIT! posts on here (whether you lean left or right). But maybe they don’t fire you up. But this vid… this vid right here… Just play it. Watch Killer Kill From Adamsville, and it will GIVE YOU BACK YOUR FIRE and make you care about the fight again. In a most powerful way, his speech above makes it clear: Killer Mike Endorses Bernie Sanders, the next President of the United States!

Now sure, you will make your own decision in that ballot box, but a candidate is known and judged by the company she or he keeps; and the enemies she or he makes. Do your research. Who is in who’s corner? What fights is your candidate picking? I’m not sure I completely #FeelTheBern yet, but the temperature is rising.

Oh, and just in case you are thinking this is just more ‘politicking’ peep after the jump. The whole event, including what Bernie Sanders has to say (and eat).

Stephen Colbert Talks Politics With Bernie Sanders And Walks ‘Silly’ With Lupita Nyong’O (Video)

Y’all done messed up now. Giving Stephen Colbert a ‘bump’ to a bigger media platform – from Comedy Central to CBS – allows him to do what he does, increased by an order of magnitude. Political satire on 10? Nah, on 100! And he’s just getting started. Above: Check him out lampooning the 2016 field of U.S Presidential candidates. “Feel the Bern” (candidate Bernie Sanders) for real. And dare you not to chuckle at the Republican candidates…

…Oh, you already were? Well, this’ll chuck some chuckles into the laugh fest.

Hit the jump for more hilarity; and Colbert spending some silly time with actress Lupita Nyong’O. And by the time all your watching and laughing are done, you will also have a little something to think about. Balancing comedy and commentary: it’s what Colbert does better than most anybody else in the biz.

Talib Kweli And Bill Maher Discuss #BlackLivesMatter Protesters Interrupting Bernie Sanders’ Presidential Campaign Speech (Video)

Bill Maher: Why Bernie Sanders? …If you’re gonna interrupt somebody… This guy had a hundred percent approval rating from the NAACP.
Talib Kweli: NAACP liked Donald Sterling, too.

And folks, that’s how we dig into a real conversation! Watch the video clip above and gain some perspective.

A while back, #BlackLivesMatter shut down a speech appearance by 2016 Presidential hopeful and leading American Progressive Bernie Sanders. Many disagreed with the women who took the mic. But EVERYONE paid attention, talked about it, talked about #BlackLivesMatter from many angles. Whether you ultimately agree or disagree with the tactic, Kweli does make a couple of solid points. The first, the duty of activist-protesters is to disrupt and gain the platform (which #BlackLivesMatter did LITERALLY). The second, NO candidate should take the Black vote for granted in 2016.

Very interesting. Do you agree with Kweli? Discuss…
